The Iconic Chrome Seatbelt Buckle

After building our first run of bags in the mid-90’s, we got tired of pulling heavy bags over our heads and decided to find a better way. We visited a local auto scrapyard, started cutting seatbelts out of old cars and an icon was born. Tough enough to stay buckled in any kind of situation but easy to release when you need to get out of your gear – Chrome’s signature messenger sling closure.

Originally developed for fighter pilots’ flak jackets in World War II, 1050 denier nylon is tough as hell and abrasion resistant. After dying we coat the back with polyurethane for extra water resistance.

    I ❤️ chrome bags. I have used the small messenger bag for commuting on bike and just as a laptop bag. This one is going to be great for RAGBRAI. it is the perfect size to carry what I will need daily and not weigh down my bike.

    Love my new Chrome bag. It's the perfect size to carry my essentials, when I can't use my big messenger bag. It's comfortable to wear, and has good size pockets. It has great style. I get compliments all the time.

    Exactly what I wanted.

    Exactly as expected. Quality product. One thing to be mindful of is that the buckle strap part is exactly the same as the full version of other bags so I can see it being uncomfortable for others if weight isn't evenly distributed.

    Nice and stylish light carry option

    I use this bag (along with a pannier, if necessary) for my daily commute. It's light, useful to stow the jacket I wear in the morning when it warms up in the afternoon. The nylon is durable, and although the main compartment features a waterproof zipper it doesn't have the waterproof lining featured on other bags. Also, compression straps on a bag this size seem primarily stylistic but they do look cool and feature a reflective coating. The shoulder strap is well-padded and well-designed. The bag is comfortable to wear, and impossible to overload your back with. If you just need a minimalist bag and waterproofing isn't necessary this is an attractive option.
